New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
One of three manuals developed to supplement the English Language Arts Syllabus K-12 for the State of New York, this draft manual discusses listening and speaking in the English language arts curriculum K-12. Designed to help teachers plan day-to-day instruction, the manual explains the rationale for listening and speaking instruction, defines expected learning outcomes, and suggests strategies for teaching listening and speaking from within a process perspective. The manual provides information on the components of an integrated English language arts curriculum, suggests general criteria for an effective curriculum, outlines the communication process and the roles of listeners and speakers in that process, explores the classroom as a communication environment, and discusses the integration of listening and speaking instruction with instruction in the other language arts and in the content areas. The manual further provides a chart of expectations for student listeners and speakers K-12, suggests methods of evaluating listening and speaking skills, and provides sample activities that show how identified listening and speaking objectives and focus skills can be integrated into the students' total learning program. A bibliography contains eight briefly annotated items. Appendix A contains samples of listening and speaking evaluation instruments. Appendix B provides information regarding instruction of students with handicapping conditions. A questionnaire for field review of the manual is attached. (SR)
